Linda Brant received multi-year grants for her project, Monument to Animals We Do Not Mourn. She writes:
The goal of the project is to build a monument dedicated to animals we do not mourn and install it at Hartsdale Pet Cemetery in New York. The cemetery is known as The Peaceable Kingdom because all species are welcome there. It will be located near the War Dog Memorial. The monument will stand for all unmourned animals, and will feature a cast bronze cattle skull with a faceted quartz crystal in the position of the third eye, as a symbol of compassion. Since Hartsdale Pet Cemetery is on protected land, the monument will be a lasting, public expression of the significance of the lives of these individuals.
